Hensarling Continues Drive to Dismantle Dodd-Frank

03/20/17

U.S. House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) urged quick action on dismantling Dodd-Frank after a group of community bankers met with President Trump last Friday to discuss their concerns.

“It is encouraging to have a president who is listening to the concerns of community bankers who have been buried under an avalanche of burdensome regulations as a result of Dodd-Frank," said Hensarling.

“Republicans on the Financial Services Committee are eager to work with the President and his administration this year to fulfill the pledge to dismantle Dodd-Frank and unclog the arteries of our financial system so the lifeblood of capital can flow more freely and create jobs,” he added.
